The original recipe came from mesra-net but I change it by adding Ghee oil. I have cooked the filling that is the peanuts and sugar a few days ago.
2 cups flour
1 pinch salt
4 tablespoons Ghee oil
1 egg (white only)
1 1/2 sticks butter - soften at room temperature
1 cup confectioners sugar to coat the makmor
I use a tool to create design on top of the makmor cookiesThe first step is to "sangan" or fry the flour and salt on ungreased pan until dry. I only did this for about 10 minutes on medium heat.
Remove from the heat after 10 minutes. Add the egg white into the flour. Then add Ghee oil. Mix well. Then add 1 stick of butter first and mix well. If it is still did not form a dough, add another 1/2 stick of butter.
Once the dough is form and can work on, take a small size. Flatten it on your palm and add small amount of the crushed peanuts in the center.
Fold the peanuts in. This shape for this cookie is forgiving. Do not form the shape too long or the peanuts will comes out.
I use the cookies mould as in the picture to create pattern at the top of the cookies.
Bake this in the oven on 350F degree for about 20 minutes or until lightly brown.
Let the cookies cool completely before coating it with confectioners sugar.
This batter yields about 20 pieces of makmor cookies. This cookies will melt in your mouth. And then the crunch of the peanuts add texture to it. Please do not talk while eating this cookies.
